The official summary (above) is incorrect as the murder victim is named Vivian Quayle (as noted on the flyleaf of the novel). The steam railway of central England provides a corporate background for mighty personal conflicts over power in business, community, and people in this engaging police procedural thriller from Edward Marston. Whom among the 15 characters is the perpetrator of the lethal poisoning? Is Detective Inspector Robert Colbeck about to become a father and have his energetic investigative work impeded by growing family responsibilities as felt by his colleague Sergeant Victor Leeming?

Colbeck and Leeming are asked to investigate the death of the man expected to be the next head of the Midland Railway. Of course, this puts his rival for the post first on the list of suspects, even though he was the one who asked Colbeck to investigate. Then we find that the oldest daughter is estranged from the family because she was planning to elope with the head gardener, who was fired, beaten and threatened with other harm. Colbeck's boss, Tallis, decides to "help" and succeeds in injuring himself once again. The list of suspects grows as Colbeck and Leeming work on the case. Other complications bring forth an unexpected solution. Another murder well solved by the Railway Detective and Leeming.
